Advanced Custom Fields v2.0.0 Preview

Work is well under way for the next version of the Advanced Custom Field WordPress Plugin. With only Testing and bug squashing left to do, I though I would give you a look at the new and improved plugin. V2.0.0 will introduce a purchasable special field called a repeater field. This field will allow you to create infinite rows of data which is perfect for a photo gallery! The back end has undergone some major re design and now offers a simpler and more robust interface.

I hope you like where this plugin is heading. Feel free to leave feedback, I do read it all, even if I don’t have time to reply.

Elliot. Thank you for your hard work in making this wonderful plugin. This has saved me tons of work. Question about 2.0: will images be able to be added via Media Library?


5 May 2011

Hey Aaron

As of 1.1.4 you can select images from the local post library. Are you referring to the global media library?


5 May 2011

Yes. I meant the global media library.

Hi Elliot,

At the very moment I am developing a client site using ACF, and need a repeatable field for adding multiple images to a Custom Post type to get a Image Gallery, quite common requirement. Of course there are other ways but ACF offers such a clean UI & meaningful way to do so we would prefer to stick to it if possible.

Are you going to release that paid version anytime soon? I am certain client would love to pay for it, but will the release be possible at all within this week?


5 May 2011

I’m really looking forward to this release Elliot. Any idea on the release date?


5 May 2011

Hi, this looks great, any thoughts on when you will be releasing?


5 May 2011

Too cool! I can’t wait for the release. Been checking back every week hoping to see it’s out.

Hey guys. The repeater field is not available on the plugins store:

Have fun!

I just see you have update to 2.0.1 and added many new things.
For me the new option

Is field searchable? (saves field value as a normal custom field so you can use the field against wp queries)

is just amazing.
I was obligate to work with other (worst) plugins for all the filelds that are used in a custon query, but now I can stick to ACF all the way.
Thanks for your time and the work !

I used ACF for a few site now and it’s really great.
But now I want to use as a Gallery like the example, but I can work out how to make all the images a certain size, is it possible?

Is this plugin compatible with WordPress 3.2.1 custom post types?

Thanks again
